Ingrown Hair, Dry Skin & Clogged Pores
Q: I've been plucking and tweezing a uni-brow for quite a few years now, but the middle of my brow is always a mess: ingrown hair, dry skin and clogged pores all due to the tweezing, what can I do to fix this?
The benefit of these is the convenience: no messy wax pots and uneven applications of the adhesive leaving unsatisfactory results; and the ease of use: Simply pull the strips apart and use where the unwanted hair exists.
You can even cut the adhesive strips prior to separating them to create a desired arch in the eyebrows. Since the strips come in pairs stuck together cutting the shape gives you two mirror-image patterns to use.
As for the after-effects of the process, these can generally be prevented through the use of facial cleanser and a good astringent, followed by a light moisturizer after the hair removal step. To make the hair removal easier, try using a swabbing of alcohol on the area and let it dry before applying the adhesive strip.
